ODR: Trends and Potential, from an ADR perspective from Bryan Hanson on Vimeo.

The field of ADR has evolved quickly and dramatically since coming together as a discipline in the seventies, to the point where few people even think of it as “alternative” any more. Just as this evolution has involved increasing focus on the real needs and desires of those in conflict—as opposed to what those of us in the field think they should need or desire—in the realm of online dispute resolution, change is at hand as we approach a favorable turning point. Now that the World Wide Web has grown from novelty and a cool tool to a mainstream way of life involving the rapid formation and development of new communities and businesses, ODR must adapt. That involves great challenge but also enormous opportunity as ODR becomes, not a novelty, but a necessary part of life on the internet. This online talk involves a look at the rapidity of change and the implications for the near future of ODR.
